Marietta, GA – March, 10, 2016 MicroCorp, 30-year leader of partner support, announced that it is a Diamond Level sponsor at the 11th Women in the Channel  (WiC) Networking and Enrichment Event during Channel Partners Conference & Expo.  The WiC event will be held from 5-8 p.m., March 15, 2016, in Galileo 1001 at the Venetian Sands Expo & Convention Center.

The event will draw approximately 200 attendees and will include peer networking and a progress report on WiC’s many initiatives.

“Women in the Channel events and initiatives would not be possible without the contributions of WiC co-founder, Karin Fields, and others within MicroCorp’s growing organization,” said WiC President Hilary Gadda, director of the partner program at TelePacific Communications. “We sincerely appreciate the efforts of companies like MicroCorp that help to shine a spotlight on our industry’s hard-working women.”

“I am very proud and honored for MicroCorp to be a Diamond Sponsor of this important organization. Women are still underrepresented in technology, yet so much of the support throughout my career has has been from women. Supporting WiC is my part in ensuring that 20 years from now there will be even more women in technology, more women in the channel and more women business owners.”

“As an entirely volunteer-led organization, our sponsors are the lifeblood to our event’s longevity,” said WiC Sponsorship Chair and Board Member Rebecca Rosen, President of Sales Enabled. “Thanks to companies like MicroCorp, we not only provide these bi-annual networking events, but also ongoing education and mentoring programs.

About Women in the Channel (WiC)
Established in 2010, Women in the Channel’s mission is collaboration through Identity and Relationships to grow business.  WiC is a grassroots organization made up of women who are in leadership, ownership and revenue generating roles in the alternate sales channel sector of the telecommunications industry. Month after month, these women are responsible for generating sales for their companies and creating wealth for their families.  WiC members are wives and mothers and sisters, and a high percentage of us are the main breadwinners in our families. WiC brings together this group because in an industry that is growing, expanding and changing the number of women at such levels is not matching that growth.   To learn more and to become a member, please visit www.womeninthechannel.com
